Major Jeff Struecker (a real life Black Hawk Down veteran) and his award-winning coauthor tell a space-based intelligence story of intense extremes in their new novel, Fallen Angel, named for the "Angel-12" American satellite that is ambushed by China and falls 22,000 miles to land in remote Siberia. U.S. Sgt. Major Eric Moyer and his Special Ops unit are deployed to find Angel-12 and keep its advanced nuclear fuel from enemy hands-and there are many. A Russian shadow government bent on restoring the former USSR pursues the satellite as does the Chinese special forces group that knocked it from the sky. A rash of military and domestic hostage concerns ensues as the stark truth looms: three nations are racing to the satellite, but only one will get there first.

Jeff Streucker's special ops experience and Alton Gansky's writing experience make for an unbeatable combination. Much more realistic and faith affirming than the Tom Clancy "Rainbow Six" copycats out there. This style of book is making a comeback thanks to the success of faith fiction, war memoirs and combat gaming. Hope to see more. Recommended.Was this review helpful?

Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky in their new book, "Fallen Angel" Book Three in the Special Ops series published by B&H Publishing Group takes us on a search for a fallen satellite.
Deliberately satellite Angel-12 was damaged to bring it down. Now U.S. Sgt Major Eric Moyer and his Special Ops team are sent to destroy the remains of the satellite and bring back very vital, sensitive information aboard it. There are a few problems. One, there is a Russian splinter group that knows where the satellite will come down and knows that Moyer and team are en route. Angel-12 will be coming down in the wilds of Siberia so the team will be in a foreign country where the U.S. cannot help. Finally there is the Chinese who also want the satellite and its information and were instrumental in bringing ti down. All teams are converging on the same spot for the same reason and only one of them is going to walk away with the prize
Get ready for a nail-biting, page-turning thriller. Sgt. Major Moyer and the team are in deadly danger because the enemy knows they are coming and has made plans to stop them. Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky not only know how Special Ops forces work they know how to craft suspense. So much is going on within the pages of "Fallen Angel" and the characters are so real that you care for all of them, well at least the good guys. There is more to the story that I didn't mention but you didn't really expect me to tell you everything did you? Otherwise you might not want to read the book and I wouldn't want you to pass up an opportunity for a terrific read.
Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky have written a current spy story with an old-time flair. In addition they have brought in romance that is so genuine it makes you wish that all families had it. There are great themes in this book: family, duty, country and how God figures in everything. "Fallen Angel" is a book that you will want to start early otherwise you will be up very late as you will want to finish it. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next book in this series.

The novel is names from "Angel-12" an American satellite that is ambushed by China and falls to land in a remote Siberia. As America is afraid that it will land in the hands of someone that will use its nuclear fuel and there are many that would try to find it, so Sgt. Major Eric Moyer and his special unit is sent to try and find the satellite before any one else does.
They find themselves in a lot of trouble as they start looking for the satellite, as the China special forces that knocked it from the sky starts in earnest to find it first.
This is quite a thriller but I am sorry to say that it is just not my taste in books. If you love the military and like to get into a book that will take you to the action then this is the book for you. It is very well written and I believe the authors knew what they were writing about. My review tracks its self to a lot of what I read in the publisher's web page as I did not get the book finished. I just could not get into it.
Thanks to B and H Publisher for sending me this advanced copy of the book to review.
